of countries including yemen, somalia, and iraq. in particular al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is the group most likely we think to attempt attacks against the united states. we saw this in may with the disruption of an plot to take down an airliner. other groups such as the al qaeda in iraq, as well as militants based in pakistan all pose threats to our citizens and interests in those regions of the formed. -- world. we are also focused on threats poses by iran and hezbollah. iran remains the foremost state sponsor of terrorism over the world. over the past year the threat from iranian sponsored terrorism has increased. inside the united states we remain vigilant to prevent violent extremists from carrying out attacks in the name of al qaeda. this past week the f.b.i. arrest add chicago man after he tried to blow up a crowded bar in the city. a federal judge sentence add virginia man to 0 years in prison for plotting to bomb the u.s. capitol. these plots highlight the danger that al qaeda-inspired extremists pose to our country. beyond these threats we face a period of unrest and a period
, instead of focusing on iraq and saddam hussein. eichenwald writes -- >> to talk about the significance of these findings, we're joined by the author himself, kurt eichenwald, an award winning journalist and contributing editor at "vanity fair." his of a guest today is called, "the deafness before the storm." his latest book, "500 days: secrets and lies in the terror wars." we welcome you to "democracy now!" lay out the chronology for us but a lot of people know august 6, 2001, right before the september 11 attacks, explain then that memo and how you went back. >> that is the way to look at this, which is backwards. in 2004, the 9/11 commission hearings were saying, we want to see these presidential daily greeks. the bush administration fought releasing them. they finally released the august 61, which now have the infamous headline "bin laden determined to strike u.s.." in her testimony, condoleezza rice, the national security adviser at the time, said this was merely a historical document, a review of bin laden and al qaeda and what they've done. when you read it, that is what it was.
the same logistical force, the same command and control for two land works, iraq and south korea is no longer needing a land force from you in order to protect it, we could do it with air power, what's the new strategy? that's what's missing in in debate. a strategy and force capability metric, not one based on how many ships and aircraft when each can do so much more than before. >> let's go into the military aspect of it a little more. you talk about the difference between a cold war military and a 21st century military. the tactics are different and the nature of victory is different. are we prepared as a military, are we adjusted to the modern way of fighting, or are we not there dwryet? >> no, we're not there yet. for example, china to where the president has rightly shifted the focus in the western pacific, which is the center of gravity for america not just in tec terms of security but our economic interests. it has 80 submarines today. we have 50. do we want to procure another 30 at $2 billion a pop and try to have each submarine find each other like needles in a haystack
today noticed since that speech, more than 900 soldiers have died in iraq. >> so that was this date in the campaign in 2004. this date in the campaign in 2008, even though we were right in the middle of the meltdown of the financial sector, still at the center of the campaign in 2008, at the first debate between john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa trm pa tray yous, they succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date,
sights to iraq just days after 9/11, i stood up and opposed this war, knowing that it would distract us from the real threats we face. when john mccain said we could just "muddle through" in afghanistan, i argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and made clear that we must take out osama bin laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights. john mccain likes to say that he'll follow bin laden to the gates of hell - but he won't even go to the cave where he lives. [cheers and applause] and today, as my call for a time frame to remove our troops from iraq has been echoed by the iraqi government and even the bush administration, even after we learned that iraq has a $79 billion surplus while we're wallowing in deficits, john mccain stands alone in his stubborn refusal to end a misguided war. that's not the judgment we need. that won't keep america safe. we need a president who can face the threats of the future, not keep grasping at the ideas of the past. [cheers and applause] you don't defeat a terrorist
for president bashar al-assad to step down. meanwhile, "the new york times" cited reports that iraq is again allowing iran to use its air space to fly weapons to the syrian regime. the iraqis had shut down the air corridor earlier this year, under u.s. pressure. a former police chief who touched off a major scandal in china has been charged with defection, taking bribes and abusing his power. state media announced the charges against wang lijun today. in february, wang briefly took refuge at a u.s. consulate after being demoted as police chief in a city in southwestern china. that led to the ouster of bo xilai-- his former boss-- as communist party leader there. bo is still under investigation. last month, bo's wife gu kailai was given a suspended death sentence for the murder of a british businessman. in afghanistan, the military announced today it has arrested or expelled hundreds of soldiers, as part of an effort to stop so-called insider attacks on foreign troops. the attacks come as the u.s. tries to continue its plan to transition out of afghanistan. margaret warner has the story. >> w
and fought alongside this country prosperous soldiers in iraq and afghanistan -- this country's bravest soldiers in iraq and afghanistan. like all veterans, i swore an oath to defend this country. our country made a promise, too. a promise to support us overseas and to fight for us when we came home. i am here tonight to say that president obama has kept that promise. >> yes, sir! >> i noticed -- i now live with my wife and son in the great state of colorado. many of the men and women with whom i served never returned home. others came home bearing visible and invisible scars of battle. when they and their families needed help, our commander in chief was there for them. from extending veterans benefits to strengthening the v.a. health system, president obama knows that the military is the standard for american values. it was wrong that men and women that i served with could be told that they were not good enough just because of their sexual orientation. [applause] soldiers that i trusted with my life and fought alongside with could be discharged simply because of who they loved. preside
officer. host: have you traveled overseas? caller: i have done two tours in iraq and two in afghanistan. host: what about president obama leaving iraq and planning to leave afghanistan? aq, he should've gotten a status of forces agreement with the government over there and we should of maintains an air base so we would have a presence. now we have left and recently there were saying how many shipments of weapons from iran are flying over iraqi airspace into syria to support the assad regime with all the atrocities committed over there. in terms of afghanistan, joe biden was the only person in washington who got afghanistan right from the beginning. if you look at the debate with the obama surge happened, when we were going to decide between $10,000, 40,000, and 80,000 troops, it was joe biden, he was the only one who said that, let's stick to our issues and our priorities. i was wounded in afghanistan during a a non-transmission, walking down the street in a dusty village that we were being pulled out of. i was nearly killed for essentially nothing, trying to bring some kind of ideal of
at least 60 others. syrian authorities claim islamic militants whose car bombing skills from iraq and elsewhere have slipped into syria and have joined in the fight against syrian government. we can't independently confirm any of this. the number of people needing assistance has doubled since july since 2 and a half million. the office of secretary of state -- i should sadie fence. the consulting firm had the innovation. sounds like this is getting worse. >> it is getting worse. we have been talking about this for months now. it is going to get worse. at what point is this wrong? we are talking about this if chemical weapons are used nuclear weapons or things like that come to play. if there's an open use of terrorist groups with al qaeda something like that. frankly shy of that what we see here is between two branchs of islam and we see a civil war. i don't see the reason for the united states to come to the ground and intervene. >> i think the big picture question we are trying to answer is were we or others to intervene would that outcome be better than what they would get with
-thirds of republicans say there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq when our troops got there in 2003. do they have amnesia? semes thlastine ars?d inheir what explains this many people being so out to lunch they don't even remember how "w," remember him, he s president, blew his whole reason for sending our troops in there in the first place. how can peop be soelpless. anyway, this may explain why romney is inrouble because of ut t tnk har joing is ward fineman and joe klein of the times. let's take a look at the two polls. the two key states ohio and florida. according to "the washington post," president obama has a four-point lead over mitt romney in florida. four points downheren a ry tough state. 51%,/47% for obama. in ohio, the president's lead is a more comfortable eight points. 52/44. that's dramatic. we have joining us -- let's take a look at that for a minute. howard fineman, thanyou for joing us, and joe klein of "time" magazine. ank you. strikes me the mberput out night, and i'm going to get all through them, shows a party obliterated to reality. she don't seem to watch the news. don't
. it is certainly not at the level of iraq or afghanistan in terms of threats to western companies. there are some sensitivities you have to observe like the -- they decreed banning it. it does not mean it is law and it is that kind of ambiguous thing. for the moment, you have to go with libyan security. what else can i say? i think that for companies investing in libya now, relationships are a big priority. the startup costs are significant. the restrictions, the legal environment is inherited with gaddafi so you can only own some much amount of stock and that kind of thing. that will change but the government has bigger fish to fry now. i do not expect much change in the next year-18 months. i expect turnover in the ministry and places like that. and now is probably the time to start creating relationships that to sustain you in the long term. >> with regard to the question on oil, this is a real concern in the east and what we saw prior to the july 7 election was a pro-i taney armed group shot down the facility. certainly this issue of oil as a leverage by groups in the east could emerge. i am
, syria, pakistan, iraq -- i met him in person finally before he was going to pakistan. we spent half a day with him. everything that happened, everything composite to his description -- ryan finished in the last years of the bush administration, presided over a transition that was complex and difficult and retired with the highest title of career ambassador. he came back to texas and worked as the dean of a school. at that point, he was looking at a life that would be his own. fortunately, for the united states, the president called again. in very difficult moments, president obama asked him to come back to national service. being the patriot that he is, he did. he left the school and went back to afghanistan as america's ambassador in a moment when we were beginning yet another transition period this afternoon, we have been very blessed to have him come to carnegie to make this stop but his return from afghanistan. he will speak to us about what the transition in that country holds, what the prospects are at why afghanistan still matters to the united states. ladies and gentlemen, p
we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he said, no, we ought to be attacking iraq. what did you make looking at it? cheney was the intelligence guy in the white house, between bush and the cia guys. he was cutting it off and refining it and using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role in all of this? >> cheney was obviously instrumental, chris. and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by a very ideological agenda around getti getting saddam hussein and f finishing the work with the neocons and that work, considered the unfinished work from 1991, to get saddam hussein and find a pretense to do it. they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was in these warnings. at best, in curious, about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleezza rice, who i actually like personally. here she is saying something i'm afraid is always going to be on her record book. here she is testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed with president bush ab
the first iraq war veteran to serve in congress. patrick, good morning to you. let's note first of all what mitt romney did say at the american legion. this was a speech he gave on august 26th. he said in part "of course, we are still at war in afghanistan. we still have uniformed men and women in conflict risking their lives just as you once did. how deeply we appreciate their service. we honor them, we respect and love them. that's a 16-second quote out of about a 16-minute speech, but no specifics about policy there. why do you think there's been such a fear or reluctance to get specific? >> because then he has to take a stand, craig, and he refuses to do that. it's like what john kerry said in his speech the other night. mitt romney has to debate himself before he actually debates barack obama in a couple weeks. the quote that you said where mitt romney said i talked in my speech about the things that were unimportant. there's 68,000 sons of american families that are fighting for us in afghanistan. that's not important to mitt romney? i mean, he wants to be commander in chief. not just
is well and thriving in some places including iraq, including in syria where there's more and more of those kinds of people coming in, including mali and including other parts of the middle east. and it's just disgraceful that we would say that an attack such as this on space was a result of a demonstration. >> disgraceful is a strong word to use, senator. you've never shied away from using strong words. >> i never have. >> how can you say that you know -- >> how can you say when there's an attack with mortars and heavy weapons. >> is libya awash -- >> anybody who understands warfare, anybody who has the fundamental understanding of warfare knows that that's not a spontaneous demonstration. that's how, nora. >> as you know -- is libya awash with weapons? >> yes, it is. >> what susan wright said over a number of the shows over the weekend that i know you criticized. >> i was on just after her so i know what she said she said they had no evidence that it was a spontaneous demonstration. how can you say that when mortar and heavy weapons are used and it's a result of a spontaneous dem
jihadists who taught in iraq. and, yes, they are looking not only to the fall of assad, but creating the american militant. >> is this al qaeda? >> not necessarily at all. and i think you have to future in perspective that these are people that have come to file for their own ropes. this there are some from europe, so many fighters that he saw coming in from france or other european states, you look at the unemployment level there you can young men with no live, just like iraq, this become as magnet for them. ivan watson told me he flew to turkey on a plane load just libyans on board that plane. so they are present. they are on the ground. but it doesn't mean al qaeda. and remember this, what was the fate of those in jihadist fighters in iraq? i saw them lined up on their knees with smuslims behind them respect forced to leave or killed outright. >> and of course the obama administration has sai syrians should determine their own future. but should the u.s. be concerned about islamists getting in as part of -- >> it's too late. because when i talked to the activists in homs, for exam
detroit should go bankrupt, you're going to hear about ending the war in iraq, he's going to say that thing about every american getting their fair shot and playing by the rules. if you're a fan, a fan enough to go to a speech like this, you likely know what you're going to hear in broad strokes. today, today on the campaign trail, there was this moment in ohio where the crowd totally thought that president obama was going somewhere that he was not actually going. they started to audibly react as if he was talking about something that they pretty clearly really wanted him to talk about. but he was not going where they thought he was. listen. >> now, there was one person at governor romney's convention last week who wasn't entirely on script. no, no -- >> no, no. the crowd is sort of half booing and half starting to applaud. and a lillal excitement that president obama is about to talk about the off skrift guy from last week, right? he's going to talk about this clint eastwood thing, but that's not what the president is about to do at all. behold an ortorical letdown in ohio. >> t
in specifics about his foreign policy goals. >> i will end this war in iraq responsibly and finish the fight against al qaeda and the taliban in afghanistan. >> four years later, u.s. troops are indeed out of iraq. >> i am announcing that the american combat mission in iraq has ended. operation "iraqi freedom" is over and the iraqi people now have lead responsibility for the security of their country. >> in afghanistan, he stepped up troop levels, unleashed drone strikes in pakistan and yemen and rounded up top terrorists including the one whose attack started a decade of war. >> tonight i can report to the american people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda, and a terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children. >> yet with all of these successes, republicans are still trotting out the same line of criticism that the president has not been a strong leader on the international stage. >> unfortunately, for four years, for four years, we've drifted away from our proude
states. there are patriots who oppose the war in iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in iraq. we are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the united states of america. >> wow. you know, governor, i'll call you bill, known you forever, i was with a crowd, african-american crowd in a tough neighborhood north philly before the election in 2008, it's a tough crowd, tough neighborhood. they needed a lot of things they aren't getting there, all right. a lot of poverty. the biggest applause line from candidate obama, i'm going to bring this country together. that's what people got teary eyed over. i hear it here, feel it here, it's still what the country wants. they don't want to be minorities against majorities, straight against black, they want a united country. can this president still do it? >> he can still do it. he's going to do it. what you're seeing now again is that coalition coming together. brian and i are from the west. the president virtually won most of the western states. he won new mexico, he won colorado, ne
re-election and talking about his record and everything from ending the war in iraq to again, health care and also this idea that he's going to fight for the middle class. it's not really a new theme, but that's what they plan to continue hammering home. this idea that he's going to look out for everyday people unlike the republican ticket. one thing they did say is this is going to be a working convention. that's how they described it and they'll work on getting people registered to work and knock on doors, canvass and in doing so, earn a ticket to fill that huge stadium that he's going to be speak at. so we don't have too much of a preview of the speech and we'll try to contain and make the case that he's the one that will give him more time to keep the economy back on track, fred. >> athena jones. thanks so much in urbandale. we'll take the president live when he arrives there in iowa. >>> let's talk about the democratic national convention which starts tuesday, charlotte, north carolina. that's the place right there. some of the high-profile speakers include the first lady, forme
to this new article, cheney continued to argue that we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he kept saying that's not what we ought to be doing. we ought to be attacking iraq. so what did you make of that looking at it. of course, he was always the intelligence guy in the white house. he was between bush and the cia gu guys. he was using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role? >> cheney was instrumental and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by an ideal logical agenda that was based around gettiget i saddam hussein and that movement. considered the unfinished work from 1991 to go in and get saddam hussein. so they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was here in these warnings. and at best in curious about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleeza rice, who i like personally. but she's saying something i'm afraid that's going to be on her record book. she's testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed with president bush about the li
